VoIP Phone System
Many families have ditched the home telephone land line for individual smart phones for every member of the family. In business, with many people participating in the gig economy or freelancing on their own, the cell phone reigns supreme. Following the trends, businesses are going in a new direction as well. The features and cost of a VoIP phone system outweigh traditional products and services.
At a glance, you might not be able to differentiate the old business phones from a VoIP phone system. VoIP is short for Voice over Internet Protocol (or voice over IP). Some people just refer to it as an internet phone service. In reality, the desk set phones look very similar to the phones purchased or rented from the telephone companies.
Therefore, that eliminates looks as a distinguishing factor between the two. The biggest differentiator is technology. Technology is what sets VoIP phones apart from traditional phone. In a VoIP phone system, analog calls get converted into packets of IP data. The voice data in the analog system transmits over the traditional PSTN (public switched telephone network). With VoIP phones, the converted packets of IP data transmit over the internet. Similarly, it is the same transmission process as Facetime or Skype.
Using a VoIP phone system provides
many benefits for your company.
If you are a business that needs a phone set on every desk, comparing the two might be eye-opening.
Maybe you should keep these points in mind as you make a comparison:

The fact is that with VoIP your business enjoys more features than a traditional phone service. Certainly, the bottom line is that it costs less every month, too.
